Breakfast x 2

Happy “What I Ate Wednesday”! Yep, it’s that time again.

Unfortunately, my Keurig has bit the dust (I think). Since it hasn’t been working, my morning cup of coffee is just not what it usually is. I’ve been using Dunkin’ Donuts hazelnut flavor, but I think once you get used to the k-cups it’s hard to go back. Luckily, we have a Keurig at work, so I knew I would be able to feed my addiction within just a few hours. ;)

Okay guys, I know that 12 degrees does not even compare to the weather some of you are experiencing. But I’m in Texas and can’t even remember when it was this cold. I’m still sticking with the green smoothies and loving them. I drink them in my huge coat with the heater cranked up in the car and I’m able to get them down with minimal shivering. My go-to smoothie is LOTS of spinach, tbsp. almond butter, tbsp. chia seeds, little cucumber, stalk of celery, 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a frozen banana with a little added ice.

A different morning snack for today. Kind of crazy, but I’ve been craving cottage cheese lately.

Lunch was definitely a little crazy. You guys know how much I was loving pumpkin oats over the holidays, but now that I’m determined to have a green smoothie every day for the month of January; I’ve had to give up my morning oats. That just means I have to have pumpkin oatmeal for lunch. Nothing wrong with that. ;) I cooked these like this… minus the banana and pumpkin butter.

A little while after lunch, it was time for my coconut mocha coffee. I know I say this every time I try a new k-cup, but this is seriously the BEST ever!

My afternoon snack was baby carrots, apple slices and almond butter. Please excuse that recycled photo.

And for dinner, Madelyn and I went out for sandwiches at Which Wich while Landen had gymnastics practice. I had the black bean patty with spinach, tomato, black olives, caramelized onions, mushrooms, feta and Dijon mustard. It was yummy, as usual!

Don’t think I didn’t reach for a few bites of the Monster Granola Bars for a little treat before bed!

Since my Keurig is not working I wasn’t really feeling coffee, so I finally tried some of the green tea that Wild Harvest sent me. Was it as good as coffee? Nope, but it was pretty good.

  1. Vegan bowls – my new passion! Big cups, full vegetables and still other tasty things ;) With rice, bean and so on… I hope, you understood that I mean

  2. Just wrote down your smoothie recipe – sounds delicious. Does it turn out creamy?

  3. Stop taunting me with all the delicious dessert flavoured K-cups that I can’t get my hands on! I’m seriously considering going over to the Keurig website after this and ordering few boxes. Actually… that sounds like a good idea :lol:

    And oats for lunch is never a bad thing. I had pancakes for dinner yesterday, and I could probably eat breakfast all day, every day.

    PS – ditto on the strange cottage cheese cravings…

  4. LOVE oats for lunch! I need to start having them for lunch and dinner again.
    And I’m with you on the green smoothies! We do have a little colder temps here (6-7 degrees C), but my smoothie love is going strong.

  5. Love the combination of fruits and veggies in your green smoothie! Must be freezing to drink, though, so I don’t blame you for cranking up the heat in your car ;)

  6. Good for you drinking your smoothie and shivering!! I’ve been saving mine for the weekends when I can snuggle up in my fuzzy robe in front of my space heater. Those pumpkin oats look so tasty!! It’s freezing in my office and I could definitely go for a warm bowl of oats right now! Stay warm!

  7. Just hearing about these K-Cup flavours I’m convinced they’d turn even me [and I’m NOT a coffee drinker] into a coffee fan. We can’t get them over here, though, so I guess I’ll keep my non-coffee habit up. And wow, your oatmeal is picture perfect. I’ll be over for breakfast, no, wait, oatmeal lunch tomorrow :).

  8. I’ve been having weird cottage cheese cravings too! I’m just rolling with it. And with cinnamon it’s amazing!

  9. Breakfast multiple times in one day is ALWAYS a good idea. Brinner is one of my favorite things ever! :)

  10. I’m with you on the smoothies! Wind chill was -45 this week and I still love it!!

  11. Awww RIP keurig! haha. And 12 is really cold for Texas, but you’re right about it not comparing. It is INSANE out here! -15 and below. Cuh-razy!

  12. Brrr! That is pretty darn cold in my book! We’ve been having above normal temperatures here. It’s actually supposed to be 70 this weekend! Not a good thing since we need the rain so bad! It’s cold in the mornings though so all I’ve been craving is veggies, protein and egg!
